Business Email Compromise (BEC) has become a significant threat to U.S. businesses and individuals. Since October 2013, the FBI has identified victims from 131 countries and a global monetary loss of over $5 billion dollars as a result of BEC fraud. BEC is a sophisticated scam using email and/or other electronic communication to impersonate a business executive, employee, or other person with authority to request payments or access to employee payroll and W2 information on behalf of their company or organization.

Due to the significant uptick of the BEC scheme and its threat to U.S. businesses and individuals, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the United States Secret Service (USSS) are working together to provide up-to-date BEC intelligence to private industry. Held at the unclassified level, this presentation will provide an overview of BEC, information sharing mechanisms, and mitigation strategies.

Register for our partner event Spies & Hackers: Foreign Intelligence Surveillance and Corporate Armies, which will take place starting at 3:00pm
